The Sunbeam Corporation was founded on March 17, 1897 by John K. Stewart and Thomas J. Clark in Chicago, Illinois. Its industry is consumer products and its headquarters were in Chicago, Illinois (1897-1981), Oak Brook, Illinois (1981-?), Downers Grove, Illinois (?-?), Fort Lauderdale, Florida (1994-1998) and Boca Raton, Florida (1998-present).

The company was bought out by Allegheny International, Inc. in 1981. In 1990, Japonica Partners purchased the assets of Sunbeam after Allegheny declared bankruptcy and formed Sunbeam-Oster Co., Inc. as a successor. Sunbeam itself declared bankruptcy protection in 2001 and emerged back in 2002. It was acquired by the Jarden Corporation in 2005.
